Iron Rinn, born Ira Ringold, is a Newark roughneck, radio actor, idealistic Communist, and educated ditchdigger turned popular performer. Rinn emerges from serving in World War II passionately committed to making the world a better place and instead winds up blacklisted, unemployable, and blighted by a brutal personal secret from which he is perpetually in flight. On his way to political catastrophe he marries the nation's reigning radio actress and beloved silent film star, Eve Frame, born Chava Fromkin. Their marriage evolves from a glamorous, romantic idyll to a dispiriting soap opera of tears and treachery. Eve's dramatic revelation to gossip columnist Bryden Grant of her husband's life of espionage for the Soviet Union soon spirals their relationship from private drama into national scandal. I Married a Communist is an American tragedy as only Pulitzer Prize-winning author Philip Roth can conceive - fierce and funny, eloquently rendered, and deadly accurate.

    " Another awesome meditation on America, identity, men & women. The nesting of narration within narration as a reflection and reflector of the way in which the personal and historical intertwine is delicious. As (nearly) always, the story is page turning, characters rich and complex, themes provocative. "

    " This is perhaps my favourite novel. I love the theme, the characters, and the last two pages are some of the most beautiful I've yet read. "

    " Roth's subjects and philosophies are always compelling, but sometimes reading him again is like reading him for the first time, and I have to get used to his style all over again. "

    " 1st class Roth, plus the added relevancy of the Red Scare/media censorship. "
